DOWN I GO – at a theater near you!

September 29, 2011

DOWN I GO: Premiere New Music Video at the Aubin Cinema, London.

Not long ago, we received an email from a group of talented mofos that we’re fortunate to call our amigos. We’ve been huge fans of Down I Go from the moment we laid our ears on ’em and our eyes on their incredible video for A Wasp In Jar.

So, what was in this email you ask? A link – to their final EP, GODS and POSEIDON, a new video
directed by the mighty Adam Powell (if you aren’t familiar with Adam… look up his work now!)

Down I Go’s first video in 2007 was directed by Adam, and only those of you who’ve seen it will know how sick it is when these two forces combine. If you haven’t seen it, we urge you to check it!

POSEIDON
Nothing we can tell you can overhype this. You’re all in for one hellova show.
This is one of those amazing rare moments when a bunch of talented mofos get together to produce something monumental, totally DIY with basically zero money.

To celebrate the launch of POSEIDON, Down I Go will be hosting a FREE viewing party at the Aubin Cinema in London,  on October 8, where the video will be premiered on the cinema’s biggest screen. The video will also go live online here: http://www.downigo.com on the same day and shelsmusic will start taking pre-orders for GODS too.

Unfortunately Down I Go will cease to exist after they release their final EP on November 7th.
The EP will be limited to 300 copies on Vinyl and via digital download and will be available at http://www.shelsmusic.com

So, if you live nearby then grab your friends and head down to the Aubin Cinema.
You’ll get to watch one of the coolest music videos ever, at one of the coolest cinemas ever, have some drinks and bid  farewell to one of the coolest groups ever.
There’ll be live performances and loads of FREE giveaways too, including copies of past Down I Go releases and more…

Here’s more info on the event Facebook Event Page:

see ya’ll there! 🙂

DOWN I GO!

September 7, 2011

DOWN I GO TO RELEASE FINAL EP THROUGH SHELSMUSIC.

On November 7, 2011 shelsmusic will release DOWN I GO’s final EP, Gods.

Formed in 2005 and respected as one of the most innovative hardcore bands of the last decade DOWN I GO have consistently surpassed expectations and defied logic with their chaotic, genre-defying blend of noise-core. Accredited with creating sub-genres such as Disastercore and Robotcore, among others, and with 3 albums, 2 EPs and a trail of other random recordings behind them, DOWN I GO have been an ice cool breeze in a scene that has been drowning in it’s own stink.

Satisfyingly chaotic and therapeutically volatile, DOWN I GO have always been DIY to the core with their self produced recordings, videos and artwork – their focus has always been the music, their loyal cult following and the sharp messages that lay within layers of the noisy, twisted and satirical transmissions. Their final farewell is a sombre event for their peers and fans – and the icing on the cake of an incredible repertoire that will resonate for years to come. And it’s no surprise that after tackling themes like Dictators, Disasters, Dinosaurs and Robots, in previous releases, DOWN I GO have saved the Gods for last.

 

As with previous releases, Gods is not a simple collection of songs… it’s an event that needs to be appreciated as a whole. Like a play, choreographed by lunatics at an insane asylum it shrieks and twists chaotically. Press play and DOWN I GO will take you down with them… and wherever that is… it’s frikkin’ awesome. Gods will crush your face and rearrange your brain molecules – in a good way. Charlie Sheen has nightmares about getting his pussy destroyed by this band.


DOWN I GO will release their final self produced EP, Gods on Nov 7th through Shelsmusic. Pre-orders will go on sale on October 7th. The release will be a limited edition pressing on Vinyl and digital only and available at http://www.shelsmusic.com. The group have also completed a video with Director Adam Powell, which will be released on October 7.

If you are unfamiliar with DOWN I GO click on this link for some of their previous work.

Please head over to facebook.com/downigo now. First person to post “Fudging Awesome” on their wall will get a free copy of the record on Vinyl. First 10 people will get a free download of the album.

mucho love and respect.

Ancients Release Debut Single!

August 14, 2011

ANCIENTS RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE ON SEPTEMBER 26th ON SHELSMUSIC

After the demise of one of UK underground metal’s brightest talents, Rinoa – fans of epic hardcore music were left with a gaping hole in their universe. Fortunately, news of the split was shortly followed with an announcement by core Rinoa members to continue with a new incarnation that would take Rinoa’s unique vision to colossal new heights – or as the group would say: “a new constellation.”

Joined this time by Mehdi Safa (of *shels and Mahumodo) on vocals and Crydebris drummer Daniel Hoang  – ANCIENTS will unleash their debut 3-track single through Shelsmusic this September. And it’s no surprise that the group’s debut features such track titles as ‘Constellations’ and ‘De Stella Nova’ (the new star) to describe the fusion of unique elements that have come together to create a heavy musical journey like nothing before.

Ancients – “Constellations”
by shelsmusic

As ‘Constellations’ patiently unravels, it’s not long before you realise that something new
and monumental is on the verge of being delivered – and then it explodes into what feels like the soundtrack  to the birth of a thousand stars. It’s clear that ANCIENTS have not only retained the emotion and blistering power of all their past and present incarnations – but have also refined, transcended and perfected the art of making heavy music. But, this is more than just “Heavy”, this is colossal, delicate and beautiful – as giant slabs of distorted guitar intertwine with soaring vocals that scream like sirens of light – listeners are left recovering from the overwhelming dose of energy and emotion delivered.

This isn’t just a single – this is a mission statement by a band that are out to reshape music as we know it. ANCIENTS have arrived.

 

‘Constellations’ will be available as a limited edition single on CD (only 100 hand-screen-
printed copies and Digital.  The group have also started work on an EP that is being produced by Safa and Jonny Renshaw (Devil Sold His Soul). It’s scheduled for release early next year.

 

Watch the official Trailer for the new single HERE:

 

Mucho love and respect!

1. LABEL UPDATE!
2. *SHELS ALBUM UPDATE

4. LATITUDES NEW ALBUM

1. LABEL UPDATE!

sorry for the lack of label updates y’all! we’re still here… promise!

and now that Plains of the Purple Buffalo is on the verge of being unleashed to the world we figured it’d be a good time to squeeze in a quick shelsmusic update!

so, last year we unleashed a ton of yummy stuff from our hives. 7 new releases, including debuts by Brother/Ghost & Pretend, a new Admiral Angry EP on Vinyl, new albums by Ef and The Ascent of Everest and our very first ever Label Compilation 🙂 we then took some much needed time to finish our own new album Plains of the Purple Buffalo

being the small DIY operation that we are, we’ve had to be super picky about the projects we’ve gotten involved with in the past.. and starting NOW we’re gonna be even more picky – we’re gonna focus on fewer releases every year, maybe 3 or 4 max – and put more TIGEERRRUUPPERCUTS into every one. yeah. 

so, 2011 will kick off for shelsmusic with the new *shels album Plains of the Purple Buffalo

– and followed by the debut single and then EP by Ancients – featuring members of Rinoa, Crydebris and *shels.

 

We’ll also be announcing another new release soon – just waiting to confirm it, but this thing has had us jizzing in our panties non-stop for the last few weeks… so stay tuned for more news on that!


we’re looking forward to getting back to work with the label and as bringing you awesome music from around the planet. we’re super stoked to be doing what we do – working with some of the coolest artists and musicians from around the world – And we’re totally blessed to have the most awesome and dedicated music lovers on the planet following and supporting what we do – we promise to keep working our asses off for you to bring you the best shit we can!

see below for other bits and pieces from our magical kingdom:

mucho love and respect!

6. BLACK SHEEP WALL – TOUR AND NEW ALBUM
In 2008 we introduced you to one of the heaviest bands on the planet. and after witnessing LA sludge metal doomers Black Sheep Wall completely tear it up at Murderfest alongside Converge, The Red Chord and others earlier that year – we knew the world was in for another A Hole being torn. 

following the incredible response from around the world to their crushing debut album ‘I Am God Songs’ Black Sheep Wall proceeded to go through some turbulent periods – and as with all super hazardous compounds, the band was on the verge of collapse on more than one occasion.. but we’re happy to report that Black Sheep Wall are not only still standing.. but their form is more brutal than ever before – and with a new album on the verge of being released the group is currently touring the US – the band recently signed to Southern Lord Records, which has been home to such groups as Mayhem,Morbid AngelKylesa, and Dillinger Escape Plan and while we’ll be sad to see these mofos leave our nest, we’re proud to have been involved and super excited about their future, which is burning brightly. you can get more info about the new BSW album and their current tour on their Facebook Book page here.

First and foremost we want to wish you all a belated happy new year! Sorry for the lack of updates of late – we promise to make it up to you by embedding mucho hidden free gifts within this mailer – so get your predator vision ON. We’ve been ridiculously swamped catching-up with orders received over the holidays – as some of you already know, we totally sold out of all our merch in the first few days of our FREE Shipping sale and had to repress everything, which was a bit of a mission with most places being closed for the holidays. Add to it bad weather affecting shipping and it all turned into a massive delay getting stuff out. But we’ve finally caught up and if you haven’t yet received all your merch, you will do any day now! Thanks for your patience and Congrats to those of you who managed to get the Free shipping deal;) Aside from that we’ve been busy talking with a bunch of new bands and working on our plans for 2011. Top of the list and first to announce is Ancients – a new project comprised of members of recently defunct Epic rockers RINOA – the line-up also includes members of the incredible Crydebris and Mehdi Safa of *shels on Vocals.

Following the hugely successful release of their beautiful 2nd album “From This Vantage” Nashville’s The Ascent Of Everest have been invited to play a slew of Festivals and shows across the US and Europe. The band is currently putting together dates for a European tour – more info will be released as soon as dates have been firmed up. If you live in Europe you can expect to see TAOE near you soon! If you haven’t picked-up a copy of “From This Vantage” do it at http://www.shelsmusic.com and don’t miss out on this. For fans of forward thinking, adventurous, brave and extremely emotional music. We are in love with this band and what they do and so proud to be involved. We hope you’ll jump aboard and join us in supporting brave musicians doing what they love and believe in like The Ascent Of Everest.

6. SHELSMUSIC DIGITAL STORE
Thanks to all of you who have been downloading music directly from us at our digital store located at http://www.shelsmusic.com. This is where we as a label and the bands get the most from your orders. While iTunes and other sites are great at distributing music across the web, we as a label and the bands only get a tiny share of those downloads. So we hope you’ll spread the word and encourage folks to download directly from our site where and when possible.

We’ll also be introducing some sweet deals soon at our store. For example we feel that if folks are willing to buy a Tshirt, hoody or print they should get to download an album of their choice for FREE from our website. Not only is it a nice treat – but it’ll help us get spread some of this awesome music that we believe in so much.

7. THANK YOU
In closing we’d just like to say that we are BLESSED to be able to do what we do. Thanks to all of YOU. We might be a small label working in a super challenging industry – but if you think independent labels have it tough, just consider what it takes to be in an unsigned band or a band on a small label. We’re extremely honored to be involved with bands like Latitudes, Admiral Angry, Ef, The Ascent of Everest and all the rest of the bands on Shelsmusic. All of whom share similar stories of perseverance and juggling day jobs with trying to save up enough to go on tour or record and release their music. It takes a lot of guts to do what they do and we hope you’ll jump on the starship Shelsmusico and help us support these talented folks by spreading the word – buying a Tshirt or picking up a copy of the album – in return we’ll do all we can to make sure you’re happy and proud of your order by putting love into the artwork, and the work whether it’s recording, printing or whatever. We want every order, every release, every print to be a timeless collectable you can be proud of. So, if even the most you can do is post a comment on one of the band’s Facebook pages or an email – then do it – things like that can be so encouraging and fuel for a band to keep BRINGING IT in the face of whatever difficulty. Thank YOU all for being a part of this. We’d also like to say that there are thankfully A LOT of good people out there doing shit the right way –  helping bands, labels like us and helping good music be heard. Magazines like Rock Sound, Terrorizer many labels, promoters, venues, photographers and fans who get involved, give up their time, energy and help. We’re proud to know you and work with you on a daily basis.So, here’s to an incredible 2011 for us all. Now check out http://www.shelsmusic.com, complete your shelsmusic collection and bang your heads! :)mucho love, thanks and respect!

Mourning, Golden Morning!

February 9, 2010

EF SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ON APRIL 5th ON SHELSMUSIC
free download and album preview at the bottom


It’s been an incredible journey for Swedish post-rockers
Ef. Since forming in 2003 the young 5-piece have firmly established themselves as a pioneering voice in the global post-rock community – and with two critically acclaimed albums and an EP already under their wings, along with a reputation for breathtaking live shows, Ef is set to release its most monumental album yet.

Produced at Music-A-Matic studios in Sweden by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna, “Mourning Golden Morning” showcases Ef’s awesome presence like never before. Weaving together strings, brass, guitars, percussion and vocals with heartfelt delicacy, the band delivers inspirational passages, performed and recorded live. The result is a glorious album that captures the essence of Ef and sends the listener on an unforgettable emotional journey.

“Mourning Golden Morning” will be released on April 5, 2010 in the UK through Shelsmusic. It will be supported with a full European tour, which will include dates in the UK in April and May.

The bands says:

“We don’t want to put too many thoughts in your head by explaining the music too much. We’d prefer to let you listen for yourself. “Mourning golden morning” is the result of a few friends, a few years older than last time, trying to tell some epic stories with as few words as possible, using sound instead to explore and release emotions. We feel this album is more focused and true to ourselves than anything we’ve ever done. We hope you enjoy it!”
